The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks advanced to the championship games of their respective conferences with victories in the NFL playoffs on Saturday. Here is a recap of all of the day’s action:

New England 43, Indianapolis 22

LeGarrette Blount ran for 166 yards and four touchdowns, and the New England Patriots dominated the Indianapolis Colts, 43-22, in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs in Foxborough, Mass. on Saturday. The Patriots outscored the Colts 22-10 in the second half to advance to next week’s AFC Championship where they will face the winner of Sunday’s Broncos-Chargers game.

Blount ran for three of his scores in the first half as New England bolted out to a 21-12 halftime lead. The Colts were still within a score at the end of the third quarter courtesy of Andrew Luck’s 35-yard touchdown pass to LaVon Brazill.

Blount’s 73-yard run early in the fourth quarter coupled with Stevan Ridley’s 1-yard TD run on New England’s next possession helped send the Patriots to their third straight AFC title game.

Tom Brady threw for 198 yards for New England, which scored a franchise playoff-record six rushing touchdowns, all from Blount and Ridley.

Luck threw for 331 yards and two scores for Indianapolis, but he was intercepted four times. T.Y. Hilton caught four passes for 103 yards for the Colts.
